For the very first time, Languages International was proud to host the “Sakura Festival.” Originally celebrated in Japan over the course of 2-3 days, it is a time to celebrate the beauty of nature while enjoying a picnic under the cherry blossom (Sakura) trees.

Although the Sakura trees blossomed 3 weeks early this year, we managed to locate the last remaining trees. With Sushi and L & P ( a New Zealand soft drink), we were able to bring Japan and New Zealand together for an enjoyable experience!
